The Crime by fiveplustwo

The Crime

In one of Franz Kafka's short stories, "In the Penal Colony", crimes are punished by a machine carving the skin of the criminal with the name of the crime.
Guilty, your honor.

Powerful image Domenico. In the same line as the tattooing of innocent people in WWII in the concentration camps.

Well aren’t we all guilty of that crime?! This is a marvelous rendition of the challenge. Thought-provoking.

@overalvandaan thank you very much, Saxa! I don’t know if Kafka’s short story was pre- or post-war. Matter for thought, however.
@helenhall sorry, Helen! I did not intend to hurt anybody’s sensibility!

@domenicododaro no need to apologise - I guess it shows the image has done its job
